We had a wonderful week of Spring Break activities last week, even though Mother Nature didn’t want to cooperate!
Please note that the Eckhart Public Library campus will be closed one day this week, on Friday, April 3, for our own Spring Break. We will reopen with regular hours on Saturday, April 4.
Also, you can register now for Family History Boot Camp Part One! This free, four-session class is for beginning researchers interested in working on family history and genealogy. Previous classes have filled up quickly; register by calling 925-2414 ext. 420 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
